Cook bacon in a small skillet until crisp, then transfer to paper towels to drain.
Remove all but about 2 teaspoons of fat from skillet and then add onion and cook, stirring, until soft and translucent, approximately 3 minutes. Spread on a small plate to cool.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Chop or crumble bacon into small pieces and put in a medium bowl. Add pork, 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce, Tabasco sauce, salt and onions to the bowl and mix gently to combine. Shape into four ¾-inch-thick patties.
Brush grill with a wad of paper towel dipped in oil to prevent sticking. Brushing with additional barbecue sauce, grill burgers until cooked through to center, about 5 to 8 minutes per side.
Top with sliced Cabot Pepper Jack, Sharp Cheddar or Seriously Sharp Cheddar cheese and cover with grill lid or foil until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Serve on rolls and enjoy every delicious bite!
